Bad Pixel On Laptop?
I just got a new laptop. There is 1 pixel that is bright green and doesn't change. Not normal right? or is it?

No it is not normal, it seems effectively like a dead pixel, I would personnaly return it unless it doesn't annoy you too much. Be warned though, some stores have specific return policies about LCDs and dead pixels (only replace the product if x pixels are dead)

It's normal !
A 1024*768 TFT display is salable with
less than 4 burned pixels (production process spec ).

I thought I had a bad pixel on my desktop LCD.
The Wife told me the cat attacked the screen while it was running defrag. One little calw puncture . . . . . I just wish it was a bad pixel.

I had one on Hansol 520F
To "fix it" I simply geeeeeently knocked it with the finger and its gone
(someone correct me if I am wrong but I think bad pixel is just loss of contact)
If you dont have warranty I wouldnt recommended though
and as far as Hansol goes 5 Pixels is limit for exchange
I guess you can knock out 4 more if "fixing" it doesnt work <- just kidding
